Ophthalmic surgery involves all conditions and disorders of the eye and eyelids. It is carried out by a highly specialised group of doctors, called ophthalmologists, who have undertaken a long period of advanced training.
The eyes are one of the most delicate structures in the human body which require careful and timely surgical intervention to stabilise or improve vision. Eyelid surgery is important to ensure the ocular surface is adequately protected and allow the visual system to function correctly.
It is important to see an ophthalmic surgeon, even when surgery is not required.

When surgery is needed, ophthalmic surgeons are trained to perform surgery to the highest standards both inside the eyeball (intraocular) and on the delicate eyelid skin.
